Not yet received any updates on GC
Concurrent filing in May 2017 and interview on Jan 2019 and current in Aug bulletin. I still have not received any updates. I hear so many people who filed much later than me have got it approved. Is there any particular order in which the cases are being approved.

Can my wife have interview without me?
Hello everyone. I wish you all stay safe and healthy.
There are some quick changes in my case. I noticed that my attorney send me a message that they received my wife's interview notice. I did not have any update in any account with USCIS and did not receive a notice mail.
Can she have an interview without me? What happened to me, I was waiting for an additional background check but there is no update since 11/2019.

Also, I have another important question. The attorney suggested to not take I-864 with her. This form was required in the interview notice sent to the lawyer. He is claiming that our paystub and tax returns are enough. Do I need to have it or not?

If you have any idea about my interview or about this application (public charge), please let me know.

Thank you for your time and wish all of you have greencard and citizenship very soon.

Hi! Has any one here already received a reschedule date for their cancelled interview because of covid?
I think Queens, Brooklyn & NY FO are mostly on the same location at Federal Plaza.
I've read marriage based cases were approved at NY FO but no news yet for employment based.

Your input is greatly appreciated.

Second fingerprint appointment
Hi. My I485 is pending since March 2019, waiting for interview. Last month we sent documents for work authorization extention and today received letter with fingerprint appointment, but we already did one last year. Anybody has similar experience? Why do they ask for fingerprints second time? Is it good or bad sign?

2) Incase I do get a medical RFE, how much time does it take for them to review and approve GC
